Rachel from Card Services

...doesn't call me anymore. :/

I suppose that she's called every phone number on the planet 700 times each means she was running out of suckers?

Now the calls are from "Mariott Hotel".

Card Services wants to reward me for my excellent history of making my credit card payments on time.
ME: You've been following my credit card payment history?
Them: Yes Sir!
ME: Which Card?
THEM: The one you use most often.
ME: I don't have any credit card.
THEM: *click*

THEM: Press one to speak to an agent.
ME: (presses one)
THEM: Good afternoon,Sir. Thank you for your...
ME: Did you know you have called a number on the Federal Do Not Call registry?
THEM: *Click*

I told one guy that, and he went on with his spiel.
ME: DON'T F***ING CALL ME AGAIN!!
HIM: I'll tell you what I'm going to do for you Sir. I'm going to put your number on a dialer, and you will get 1,000 calls a day.

I haven't.

The major carriers say they are going to do something about these fake number displaying calls, but nothing so far.

KSA, they will not actually give you the 0% interest rate. They just want you to give them your card numbers and any security codes, and them your accounts will be drained, and all you have is their phony phone number.

Yes, clearly. ����

I was pointing out that is the obvious scam about it. It would not be possible to do what they say.
